The most common questions we have been answering of late:
1. I did not see my flight photo on the site, is there a way to get a copy?
: If you do not see your BMT flight photo on-line,chances are we do not have it (at least not yet). This
collection is made up of photo donations from those people who have copies of their BMT flight photos --
we are patiently awaiting everyone
to send in a copyof their photo. We suggest that you continuously check the website
for your particular flight photo.
2. Do you have my Air Force record?
No. However you can check the National
Archives on-line for more information: http://www.archives.gov/veterans/evetrecs/index.html
3. How do I submit a copy of my Air Force BMT
Please see the center aisle of information on this page: "How to Submit A Photo". Copies of photos can be mailed in and digitized copies emailed.
4. I sent a copy of my flight photo in over a month
ago-- why is it not on-line yet?
We process the photos in the order they are received. Due to the overwhelming response to the project, we are behind in the processing of
newly arrived photos. Please be patient and do not send duplicates. We will get your photo archived as soon as possible.
5. I have an oversized photograph - what do I do?
: Please see the "How To Submit A Photo."
6. I am looking for a copy of my flight book from when I graduated. Do you have a copy?
No. Along the same lines as the flight photos, independent contractors have put those together and like the photos, the contractors have not kept copies. The only ones out there are what you and your flight mates purchased. On the bright side, many people have been donating their flight books to the collection. However, in the case of those books from Lackland, typically only one flight was featured in each book.
7. Do we have a list of everyone who has come
through basic training?
No. I wish I did....but no. Please bear in mind that the Gateway has had nearly seven million people pass through the gates. We are patiently waiting for the other 700K photos to arrive :)
